Chain is already an "include with depends", so no need to do it twice.
If it doesn't throw an error, it doesn't mean that it is good practice.
Chain will make sure that the chained package is installed directly
after the one containing the chain.
Keep the CHAIN, but remove the DEPENDS and you are save.
Always keep packages as simple as possible, the more you add, the higher
the possibility to get into trouble.
